about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. in the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romne
to happen to mitt romney all the time. the worst one was that cnbc interview he did with scott pelley. >> my position has been clear throughout this campaign. i'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother. >> rape and incest and health and life of the mother, except that's not supposed to be his position. he forgot what his actual position was. his campaign that to clean it up for him. the romney campaign will not say the candidate misspoke but a spokeswoman said he does not actually support an exception for the health of the woman. mr. romney did not misspeak, he just speaked something that missed what the he actually meant. it was also the time at a town hall debate and mr. romney was horrified by the whole idea of. >> it i don't believe employers should tell someone whether they should have contraceptive care or not. >> at the time, seemed like quite a relief. all these republicans support it. mitt romney does not support the blunt amendment to let your employer decide whether you can provide contraceptives. the problem is he for
mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? ♪ >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation on your radio, and on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: well a belated happy st. patrick's day. hope you celebrated and are ready to go with a whole new busy week here in our nation's capitol. president obama headed off to the middle east. good morning, everybody, what do you say, monday march 18th. so good to see you today, yep, hope you did have a good weekend and are ready to go today here on a monday morning. it is the "full court press," we're coming to you live on current tv, on your local progressive talk radio accusation, and on sirius xm this hour only. we'll let you know the news here from our nation's capitol. we'll tell you what is going on here around the country and around the globe, and open up our phones and our social media so you can tell us what it all means to you and your family. 866-55-press is our number. on twitter it's simply @bpshow. more and mor
happening the week after scott prouty made that video, the 47% tape at the romney fund-raiser, it was the tape that showed us what mitt romney was thinking. there wasn't anyone there, marco rubio to some extent took on that 47% tape indirectly, but they don't seem to be acknowledging that the concepts advanced in that video were devastating. >> right. >> and you can prove it in the polls the following week of the campaign. >> right. >> as howard said, it is not the packaging, it is what's in the cereal box. they're trying to change colors on the outside and pretend there's an entirely new product and everybody will be excited on the inside. you mention governors. from a strategist standpoint, i am reminded last time the republicans were in this predicament, they lost to a democrat the second term. congressional leadership was deathly unpopular, it was the tom delay days, and there was a governor named george bush in texas who decided to become a compassionate conservative, start talking about and appealing to the so-called diversity that rush talks about. but i remember
to 28, as from mitt romney proposed, but 39 to 25%. it is just a pipe dream. >> are we ever going to settle this thing, lois? >> and then we might. i think the charm offensive is working a little bit. mitch mcconnell is speaking well of the president in saying that we have useful meetings. his biggest problem might end up being the democrats, trying to move them through some sort of entitlement reform. >> evan? >> maybe obama has got some secret plans to, but i don't see it. this is too little too late. if he was serious about a grand bargain he would have started in november. instead, he behaved like a political hack for months, and then his polls go down and he says, okay, i guess i got to show i'm being cooperative, so he has dinner a couple of times. it is not. getting. >> charles? >> and has not even produced a budget, which by law was due last month. he says it will be out the week of august 8 bid what the senate democrats have done, and these they have produced a budget, first time in four year. have thehe democrats senate and republicans have the house, we will not have a
. and tonight it's etch-a-sketch anniversary day. one year ago mitt romney's communication director accidently gave the candidate a new nickname. it was on cnn during the g.o.p. primaries and they were answering a question from a non-qualified journalist who apparently snuck into the cnn studio without permission. >> is there a concern that the pressure from the santorum gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right that it would hurt him for moderate voters in the general election. >> well, i think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. everything changes. it's almost like an etch-a-sketch, you can kind of shake it up and we start all over again. >> to this day that i'm asked to sign etch-a-sketches. i wish i could say i caused mitt romney's defeat. but after the 47% video credit for mitt romney's failure goes to one person, mitt romney. the cost of looking good will no longer be exacted on welfare of animals in europe. cosmetic products including toiletries that are tested on animals have been banned by the e.u. since 2004 but now any cosmetic product that possesses an
would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? ♪ >> there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital, and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> michael: that's republican national committee chair reince priebus today outlining the many problems his party faces. the rnc is looking at 219 specific recommendations including reaches out to minority constituencies. >> this will be a bottom-up approach, and we'll have a network of hundreds of paid people across america from the community level up to the national level dedicated to minority, youth and women inclusion. we will conduct a pilot program to test these efforts. >> michael: watch thu rnc is coming to get you. let's get a republican's take on this effort. republican strategist jack bur
was being vetted as a possible running mate for mitt romney. he said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over-partman. second, why is it important to have firsthand experience to do the right thing? is it an existential experience necessary to have existential consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, that nobody deserved to have their decency diminished or people don't deserve to be disrespected. he stopped short of endorsing his position. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. churches do change. >> hillary clinton showed her support in this video. >> like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people i have known and loved, by my experience representing our nation on the world's stage. my devotion to human rights, and the guiding principle
mitt romney of course a couple weeks ago said the longer primary process hurt him. but again, i think this is very much the establishment in washington, it's going to be interesting to see how this plays, going out into states. or maybe the center of gravity isn't necessarily with the rnc. >> good point. some of that divergence that we saw over the weekend clearly at cpac. another report is that america looks different. that the rnc is going to spend millions of dollars, $10 million to reach out to latino americans, asian voters and here's what steve latourette said. take a listen. >> if we ever want to be a national party, we have to look like america. today, we look like a bunch of white guys from below the mason/dixon line. >> so how do they change the reputation of a party of stuffy white men as has been said, as the report describes it when candidates when chosen are often white men? >> well, it's not just the candidates. it's the workers, it's the convention. you go to the republican national convention it looks entirely different than the democratic convention that looks truly
son? we do know that last year portman was being vetted as a possible running mate for mitt romney. he said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over portman. second, why is it necessary to have firsthand experience with a person or situation in order to figure out how to do the right thing? is an existential experience necessary to have existential position necessary for consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, and respect, people don't deserve to be disrespected. >> priebus stopped short of endorsing portman's position and obviously the rnc does not. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. and racial justice. churches do change. and their members as well. meanwhile, hillary clinton expressed her support of marriage equality in this advocacy video. >> i support
where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a lot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
worked for several republican governors including mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. >> reporter: a date for her confirmation hearing has yet to be set but probably, bill, in the next few weeks. bill: thank you, doug mckelway, more on those e-mails. >> well the family of a jailed american pastor in iran is now demanding that the obama administration issue a statement calling for the release of saeed abedini. attorneys for the abedinies at at hearing on friday accuse the u.s. state department being quote, awol on this subject for the last few months. listen to some of this. >> i think the state department's refusal to appear before this committee today is extremely troubling and frankly offensive. the failure to appear today to testify frankly is inexcusable. we've had some dialogue with the state department over the last several months. i will be honest, mr. chairman it has not been pleasant. the lack of concern, the lack of engagement has been problematic in our work to free pastor saeed abedini. saeed abedini is a united states citizen. he is us and our government
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
, that mitt romney's comments about the 47%. this report says the very same thing t at the time, we talked about how the romney campaign didn't have troops on the ground didn't have any really good database. this report says the same thing. the key is and tell me your take on this. 866-55-press. will the party change? will it recognize what went wrong? and will it change? i don't think so. let me give you three quick examples. the report says would havee have to increase our outreach to mine or at this. the day after the the report president obama nominates tom perez for labor secretary and rush limbaugh and says this is as bad as hugo chavez and another because he supports immigration reform. another example, the report says, again, we have to reach out to more young voters. the day after the report came out, reinye brebius said the party is one man and one woman. we are against same-sex marriage. 81% of young people support marriage equality. >> if there is any issue that it shows the generational gap, it's marriage equality. >> bill: another one, the repo
the romney/ryan campaign. there has never been a better marketing campaign than the last year of republican politics. the entire debate promess, primary process, leading up to the convention the convention itself, was actually the perfect marketing for the genuine principles and concepts of the party, and so when you hear them say, we have a messaging problem, what they mean is we made the mistake of telling the truth. >> we told you exactly what we feel, and you don't like it. >> hal: that's a big mistake in moll ticks. the document itself has all of the content of a paul ryan budget. >> to reveal health care reform? >> exactly, but keep the money. we'll be back right after this, and we'll talk about the rape trial verdict that came down over -- stew benville and the amazing concepts that went with that. we'll talk about it after the break, and it points to the very problem of reporting and prosecuting rape in this country and the public response to it when it's a certain type of defendant, and it's right in line with where women are finding themselves in the electo
. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? [ music ] >> this is "the full court press: the bill press show," live on your radio and on current tv. >> bill: forty-five minutes after the hour. senators diane feinstein says i worked hard on it but my leader -- get this. it's not that the nra supporters. it's not that the republicans killed the bill. dianne feinstein says my leader won't even let it come to a vote. he called her ahead of time and said, hey, you know, nice try, dianne but you are not going to make it. before we get to the phones peter, what's the social media world saying? >> peter: lots of comments. wham a coward. i bet feinstein will have a few choice words for him. blue ghosts says we can thank harry for not fixing the filibuster and removing the executes for not removing the ban. the party has crap ideas. democrats have solutions and are weenies >> bill: and no spine. so republicans have the spine. >> that's a good point.
for mitt romney during the presidential race, i'm sure that plays into the tension. this relationship, how does it shape how the two countries might be dealing with iran? >> yeah, that's an interesting question and from talking to american israeli officials this relationship endures even when there is tension between the two leaders even though it doesn't help to have that kind of daylight between them when iran is watching all these signals. that's why this trip has toot a lot with the optics visa see iran. behind the scenes there are discussions going on 37 prime minister netanyahu said 2013 will be the year of decision. and that's why they want to be on the readiness of israel on the possibility that israel could strike unilaterally. so you know, they have a lot to work out on this issue specifically on mainly what is the red line and what point does military action become inevitable? >> michael: there has been skepticism in this trip. a recent poll from the israeli newspaper asked israelis to describe president obama's relationship with their country. 38% described him as being hostile
is paying their fair share of taxes and looking at warren buffett and mitt romney and the lack of taxes they pay and argue that is fair. >> warren buffett pays corporate taxes. >> he himself says he is paying less taxes than his secretary. >> when you look at that and the portrait of the own tax liability. fair enough. >> you take that case up with warren buffett. that's what he is saying. and when you look at sort of where corporate america is sort of profiting and american middle class wages are stagnant, you can't look at this and say that's fair. >> i agree. high corporate profits are a problem. regulation exacerbate that's problem and limits at built of startups to take on the companies. that's why even in mexico taker taking on the version of warren buffett for the very good reason that's the way you get jobs and growth by having more entrepreneurship and more growth and high corporate tax that are biassed towards the ges and buffets of the world is a burden. >> it's a weird argument to say we need more regulation when corporates a corporations are sitting on record profits. >> th
there in a balanced approach for deficit reduction. where the republicans, it was the same thing that romney ryan were proposing before. talk about lessons learned. they may have learned some lessons on immigration reform. they're totally stuck in their own mud when it comes to the budget. >> on the sequester, it seems that for all intents and purposes that will continue to be the law of the land. we're going to pass a government funding bill out of congress. hopefully by the end of this week to avert a government shutdown on march 27th. you mentioned on the conference call two days ago that there really, or yesterday, rather, there's probably no, there's nothing to avert the sequester or replace it, unless there's a large-scale agreement put in place by perhaps the president and speaker boehner by august. is that the truth? should americans really feel that the sequester is here to stay? at least through the rest of this fiscal year? >> well, yeah, there two questions there. unfortunately, it looks like it's here to stay, at least for the coming weeks. and the issue will be, whether sometime between
last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real republican problem. we give people the impression that they're not wanted. the power of conservative is that it's an attractive position, it should bring people in because it's how you make it, that's h
, this new ryan republican budget looks a lot like the old romney/ryan republican budget, that americans less than six months ago rejected at the polls. >> earth to chairman ryan. come in, chairman ryan. come back to earth, because people want to get to work. people want to make sure that the earned benefits that they pay for are there for them when they finally need them and i think what we have is a budget on the democratic side that reflects the reality of people on earth. >> all right. congressman, you want to respond to the democrat? >> we want to compete for the earthling vote as well. i don't really know what to say about javier there. i like javier quite a bit. we disagree on some of these things. we're the ones that have the bipartisan idea to save and strengthen medicare not only for the current generation but the next generation. we're the ones with the courage to say our entitlements need repairing if we're going to avoid a debt crisis and make sure they don't go bankrupt. we are the ones proposing fundamental tax reform which a lot of centrist democrats agree with us on this, wol
of them from conservative states that voted for rick -- mitt romney. also, trying to stop the keystone pipeline, an amendment on carbon taxes and some amendments that republicans got done. things that dealt with climate change and other environmental issues. host: let's move on to the issue we brought you here, the house and senate this week approved legislation to keep the government funded through september, avoiding a shutdown by keeping in place the sequester. explain to us how the government funding will work under this bill. guest: the cr that was passed that heads to the president's desk, they are able to continue funding government passed march 27. it was a fine line they had to walk. republicans were not going to sign off on something but at the same time there were a number who were trying to get pieces of the sequester reinstated. as a result, he put together a , both that compromised sides working together. it leaves in place a lot of the other cuts, air traffic control towers are still going to see problems. other places where there could be furloughs, things like me inspe
, all the way back to lincoln, but today it seems to you have people -- mitt romney day 1 said that he would try to reverse it. in the history of the republican party the republicans have come up with great ideas and new things and people today want to undo that. guest: i appreciate that. what you point out is a fundamental lack of understanding of our own history relative to the things that we as trash or criticize fundamentally being oriented out of the philosophy of the party at that time. the referenced david bacon, talking about the emancipation proclamation, a radical departure from where the country was a the time. you talked about one of my favorites, affirmative action. a lot of republicans will trash that program in a heartbeat not recognizing that it was republicans who created affirmative action. richard nixon during his administration brought together african-american leaders within his administration to put in place a leveling field because he saw that black contractors were not getting a fair deal on federal contract in with their white counterparts. he wanted to create
that b.b. netanyahu used to go to school with mitt romney, that didn't help things. but there is a quote today that apparently a senior israeli official said there was -- quote -- "a tacit agreement apparently between both leaders, if not coordination, to engage in a very intense public display of affection." >>alisyn: good. fantastic. if president obama's visit to israel helps them smooth over the tensions they had in the past and forge some sort of friendship, fantastic. even if they're faking it, sometimes that works. >>brian: would you be talking to alisyn if she wasn't on television? >>alisyn: exactly. >>steve: you were talking about having a beaches brew pwao*u row and i was -- a beaches pwaou roerbgs and i was thinking i'm going to talk to her. >>alisyn: let's get to your headlines to tell you what else is making news at this hour. there are two brand-new developments to help police catch the person who murdered the head of colorado's prison system. 58-year-old tom clemens answered his door at his home and he was shot in cold blood. here's the first clue. witnesses noticed a suspi
